Many from week to week practice the attributes of being a Christian, but we fail to hold ourselves accountable for the truth that we profess to others. We agree with the message we’ve known from our youth and we claim to love the Lord but we never learn to fear the Lord.

small_f001b2c13b51eb5b1bb4a0c1we have grown accustom to our on rhetoric while ignoring Gods Spirit telling us, “whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” Isaiah 30:21(NIV) God’s Word must be a part of every thought, activity, conversation, and motive, of our life, until our lifestyle magnifies Jesus Christ and Him crucified.

Nothing can ever be about us when Christ takes full control. Sometimes change is painful because we are so use to doing it our way, but God has told us In His Word what we need to do to have a total Transformation but if we choose not too focus on the sound of His voice, one day that voice will become faint and incoherent, then it will become harder and harder to seek what we do not hear above the clear sound of the god of this world who we have become accustomed to listening too.

Those who hear God’s voice are those who walk in His footsteps,  These are the sheep who hear and recognize His voice,listen who come when He calls and follow Him wherever He goes because we know He will protect us. He is our Shepherd and comforter in our time of need. In addition, if we are to recognize God’s voice, we must also belong to Him and only him for “we cannot serve two Masters.”

We also hear His voice when we spend time in deep heartfelt prayer, and quiet contemplation over what we have read in God’s Word “For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” Heb 4:12 (NIV)

It also allows us to focus on His desire for our lives and how we can give Him all the praise, honor and glory that our Savior deserves. But my friends while God is God and He speaks to us as He chooses, His primarily source of communication is through His Word, and Spirit, and if we apply through our faith, what we read in God’s Word, we will always here the good Shepard’s voice when He seeks our presence.

lostsheep“No sooner does the sheep go astray than the shepherd is filled with grief and anxiety. He counts and recounts the flock. When he is sure that one sheep is lost, he slumbers not. He leaves the ninety and nine within the fold, and goes in search of [that one] straying sheep.

The darker and more tempestuous the night and the more perilous the way, the greater is the shepherd’s anxiety and the more earnest his search…With what relief he hears in the distance its first faint cry. Following the sound, he climbs the steepest heights, he goes to the very edge of the precipice,,,.. (Ellen G. White, Christ’s Object Lessons, p. 188.) just to rescue us my friends no matter how far we have gone or how difficult it is to get to us.

So as you make it personal today ask yourself  if  you are a child of God, IS IT SPIRITUAL MALPRACTICE NOT TO RESPOND TO THE GOOD SHEPHERDS VOICE? Remember my friends the worst situation or circumstances that we as Christians may get ourselves in from day to day, would be only one word away from the Lord responding to us, as we respond to our children when they seek our help in their time of need.

For “Which of you, if your son [or daughter] asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him? Matthew 7:9-11(KJV)


So my friends today. Stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
